Question for Newt Gingrich: Can I Get Retroactive Non-Pregnancy Pay?

I would have more to say about this, but I can't seem to get my jaw off the floor right now...

The Republican also told state senators Wednesday he supports paying poor children to read, and the state should consider paying girls to not get pregnant.

Also, if we pay those pregnant teenage girls to take their vitamins, the government wouldn't have to pay for babies in neonatal intensive care units. The Newt may actually have some good fundamental ideas on health ("more excercise, fresh vegetables"), but he sure as hell goes about this is in the wrong way. Talk about "government intrusion" into your life.

Oh, and I'm going to be needing a check, here. Thanks. It's not fair that I managed to dodge the bullets stayed chaste all that time, and didn't receive any payment for it. How much we talkin' anyway?
